With a panoramic oceanfront location and modern French cuisine with California influences, Studio is the portrait of beachside indulgence. A refined and inventive menu reflects masterful attention to detail accented with an elegant, creative touch. Ocean breezes, panoramic views and lush landscapes create a refreshing sense of place at the water’s edge and a fitting backdrop for the shared enjoyment of fine food and wine. Menus include à la carte selections of starters, entrées, cheeses and desserts; and a six-course seasonal prix-fixe Chef’s Tasting Menu. The wine list includes more than 2,200 wine labels, an extensive menu of wines-by-the-glass and suggested wine pairings for each dish. Small plates are also offered at the communal table and the turn-of-the-century bar.
Please note that Studio’s dress code does not permit shorts, tennis shoes, open-toed shoes, athletic or beach wear.

Once again, I was not disappointed with my latest trip to The Studio. Bartender was great with before dinner drink at the bar, oysters, hamachi appetizers were perfect. We had kobi beef and venison for our mains. Everything was perfect as expected.

Very disappointed.
The food was just ok and given that the prices were outrageous, it was a letdown.
I picked a bottle of wine from the menu (I believe it was around $350). When I ordered it from the Sommelier, he talked me out of it and suggested another wine. I should have asked the price but he kept saying “in that price point”. When the bill came, I saw it was $550! And honestly...i didn’t even care for it.

Absolutely the most incredible meal I've ever had with the most impeccable service I've ever experienced and I'm from NY! This is a restaurant for food & wine connoisseurs! Although to share this experience with our young adult children will forever be our most cherished Christmas meal together. Oh and the views are stunning.

Every restauranteur owner would do themselves well to dine at Studio at Montage. It’s a marketing study in excellence to be experienced and learned from.

Over the years, each visit has exceeded the prior. The gourmet delicacies depicted in the photos tasted as good as it looks. Pricey, but if you’ve never experienced Wagyu beef it’s a must, but note it’s $45 per oz, 3 oz min.

Was at Studio on Saturday, just weeks before Christmas and all the decorations at Montage made for an extra enchanting romantic evening.

This is a 5-Star resturant which hasn’t lost its magic since it’s 2003 debut
